1. Mami Wata  - Water Spirit

    African Nature Spirit

    A water-spirit, sometimes described as a mermaid figure, who can be found throughout the western coastal regions and into central Africa. Mami Wata is described as having long dark hair, very fair skin and compelling eyes. She may appear in dreams and visions to her devotees as a beautiful mermaid and is also said to walk the streets of modern African cities in the guise of a gorgeous but elusive woman. She is interested in all things contemporary and her colors are red and white. Mami Wata may give wealth to her devotees, her “daughters” or to her (male) spouses, but she is never known to give fertility.
